Jordi Riba

Jordi Riba (1968 – 2020†) was a pioneering ayahuasca researcher who dedicated over two decades of work to the field. His work focussed on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of ayahuasca, including alkaloid disposition, and electroencephalography, and neuroimaging measures of acute ayahuasca effects. He also conducted several studies on centrally-acting drugs on the acute and long-term effects of psychedelics, psychostimulants, cannabinoids, sedatives, and kappa-opioid receptor agonists. His later work moved towards investigating the neural and psychological mechanisms that could underlie the beneficial effects of ayahuasca in the treatment of various psychiatric conditions.
